Head Chef and Operations Manager Couple - Kalpitiya, Sri Lanka

Posted: 11/7/2019 - 7:51 am

Seeking self-starter couple to help cook and manage our fitness beach camp & cafe in the paradise of Sri Lanka. 

Situated in the untouched beach paradise of Kalpitiya in Sri Lanka, We are an eco-friendly fitness camp set amidst beautiful exotic gardens and lagoons with access to a fully-equipped beach gym, coworking space and cafe serving some of the best coffee and food in the region.

The location is ideal for a fitness couple looking for chilled vibes and to embrace the slow island life in a tropical beachside location. Kalpitiya is a mecca for kitesurfers and so if you wish to learn or already a lover of the sport, this really is a paradise spot for you. Otherwise,

Who we are looking for

We are looking for a proactive, positive and enthusiastic couple to be a Head Chef and Operations Manager to help with the running of the business, cooking, training, manage bookings and enquiries, accounts, customer service and staff. People who are willing to get their hands dirty (not in the kitchen of course!) and always look to new ideas, whether innovating the menu based on seasonal healthy locally sourced ingredients, training the local staff to develop their hospitality skills as well as entertaining our lovely guests. Due to the lifestyle in Kalpitiya, we need a couple who are self-motivators, hardworking and enjoy the slow life as it can be extremely chilled on the beach here! 

Daily tasks might include:

  • Cooking and serving in the cafe including making smoothies, juices and coffees
  • Customer service - assist our guests ensuring their experience with us is on brand whether in the cafe, gym or coworking space
  • Help source food supplies, create specials, cost recording, specials board and budgeting
  • Open and closing the cafe and gym
  • Staff Management - training, management, supervision
  • Day to day accounts management and book keeping (minimal)
  • Reporting to the owner of the business
  • Respond to enquiries and manage bookings (shared with Director)

We will provide shared accommodation with private room, two daily meals off the staff menu, free access to the gym and a basic salary to cover simple living expenses. We can discuss a profit share model with those that are looking for a more long term option, but ideally this should appeal to those looking for an adventure and unique experience rather than a career move! 

You will be reporting to the business owner who's main responsibility is the marketing of the business and overseeing its general direction. 

We need people who can commit to at least 3 months starting from December 20th or May 2020.
